Sited across the gardens of Quarry Bank (Cheshire), Mutual Improvement Society by artist Lucy Harvey, draws inspiration from the forms, materials and ideas behind the geological and astronomical interests of the Greg family. The work will be joined by Changing Places, an exhibition of contemporary artists’ video curated by FVU: Film and Video Umbrella as part of Arts and Wonder, a season of creative responses to the themes of work, leisure and the legacy of industrialisation at Quarry Bank.
Mutual Improvement Society is the outcome of an artist residency at the National Trust’s Quarry Bank estate this summer as part of the Trust New Art programme which Castlefield Gallery’s Director, Helen Wewiora was delighted to be guest selector for.
